    what fender basses u use and own?
    it good?
  2. My main bass is a Fender MIM Jazz 5, which I am very happy with, considering how cheap it was. Very playable, and sounds good through my Trace Elliot. One day, I will own a Roscoe Beck 5.......oh yeah.......that is one sweet bass. A bit out of my price range, though.

    1. 1962 Reissue Jazz, oly white, tort guard. Killer old school thump with TI Flats.

    2. 2000 Inca Silver MIA Jazz, also with TI Flats, also too good to be true for what I paid for it.

    3. Not really a Fender but a Modulus VJ with DiMarzio Ultrajazz Pickups. Modern is also good, heh heh.
  6. i just got a mim 4 string jazz. i got it $200 used, werid thing about it ,the finsh is not a mim color, its red with metal flake . i added a kahler trem,made the bass sound better.iam going to add a p pickup between the two jazz, just enough room. when i add the pickup i need to get new volome pots, iam going to get the typ i belived there called stacked, volume on top tone on bottom. like the ones on 62 jazz basses. so each pickups has its own volume and tone. i will be able to get so many sounds out of it. at frist i thought it felt werid playing. i was useing a 24 fret warwick. the fender is like half the weight. only problem is i think ill be playing the 7 fret but ill be at the 5. iam used to reaching more.

    A modded MIJ '75 reissue Fender Jazz. She also goes by the name of "Momma".
  12. I have a 2001 MIM Jazz. It's very good, great tone. The only mods I'm going to do on it is changing out the bridge for a Gotoh.
